About 600 people working among Arabs in Europe gathered in Milan (Italy) to attend the 2016 'Riseup Now' conference.



Arabic speaking and local Europeans Christians coming from 27 countries “were together echoing Isaiah's cry in Isaiah 64:1, that God will tend the heavens and come down, that those mountains challenging Europe will be shaken, and the Lord Himself will restore Europe's true calling as the bride of Christ”, the organisation said.

Arab missionaries to Europe were welcomed and encouraged to preach the gospel in the continent. “The Holy Spirit is now blowing back from the Middle East to Europe. In love and humility they welcomed each other, in an atmosphere in which the Lord's presence was almost tangible with tears in many eyes”.



3 seminars were held during the conference: “How to transform your church into a centre for refugees”, “Revival of the European youth. What is needed?” and "Unmasking Antichrist lies & ideology”.
